I was born in New Jersey and moved to Arizona in high school. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Arizona and my Master's degree from Northern Arizona University. I have been treating infants through adults since 2006. I love my job. I feel grateful that I get the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives.
My name is Jeff Pollett. I grew up in Illinois, but have lived in Arizona since 1985. I was a medic in the Army Reserves in 1991 while simultaneously earning a Business Management degree from Arizona State University in 1997. I worked as a HR Recruiter for Trek Bicycle Corporation in Wisconsin and eventually came back to Arizona where I worked at Costco as a Supervisor/Manager for 15 years. My youngest child was diagnosed with Autism, and as a very proactive parent I dedicated myself to learning all I could with therapies, medicines, and many autism seminars. This created a new passion and eventually led me to my second round of education at ASU, in Speech Science. I am currently an SLPA and also have plans to go back for my Master's Degree. I'm proud of the work we do, and I feel the most rewarding part of this profession is when children truly understand the benefits of speech.
My name is Michael Crowley. I come to Wheels on the Bus with 18 years of working as an SLP-A and twenty-five years of working with children and adults. The greatest and best difference in working in schools and working home health is in home health we work with the family on a weekly basis. As opposed to seeing the family once a year. I received speech therapy as a child and understand the individual's frustration. I also understand the parents or caregivers wanting their loved one a chance for success. I was in college for twenty years making it my first career. I graduated from Scottsdale Community College, Arizona State University and Utah State. Yes, I am a fighting Artichoke. In my spare time I enjoy sports and traveling. In Athletics I worked for The Oakland A's and Arizona State. I have been to 13 foreign countries and look forward to traveling to more.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts Degree with an emphasis in Speech Pathology and Audiology in 2000 from Northern Arizona University. I also received my Master of Science Degree in Clinical Speech-Language Pathology in 2002 from NAU. I am certified through the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA). I have experience with working with children in the preschool through high school setting as well as adults in a rehabilitation hospital. I currently work full time at an elementary school and supervise SLPAs with Wheels on the Bus Pediatric Therapy. I have enjoyed my career as a Speech Language Pathologist and find it rewarding to help others build their communication skills.
My name is Camille Scott and I am a speech-language pathologist assistant. I graduated with my bachelors in Speech and Hearing Sciences in May 2018 from Arizona State University.
